All you need to know to ensure you have the right cover in place

Newbury and Thatcham Hockey Club Goalie making a save and wiping out a player

Recent cases have demonstrated the need for all sports organisations to have the full and right insurance in place. Without this clubs and management committees are often liable if something goes wrong. 

What’s new for the start of 2021-22 season? 

  1. A new insurance scheme for the whole sport offering better value, cover and service for England Hockey members.  This has been arranged by our new official insurance broker Bluefin Sport. 
  2. A new minimum cover requirement in place for all member organisations, clubs and associations, which is
    • A minimum of £10 million public liability cover 
    • Personal accident cover included for members, volunteers & employees 

What to do next? 
Club Chairs and secretaries will receive an email with more detailed information on the scheme and the insurance.   

Clubs will be able to take out our new Membership+ offer that includes insurance, this will open to clubs from early August. This forms part of the club ‘affiliation’ process that clubs will be familiar with. 

For more information on the scheme and advice the team at Bluefin Sport are ready to help. 

Visit the England Hockey insurance zone, this includes a comprehensive FAQ section.
